I'm sure everyone hear remembers and dreads being grounded as kids. Sometimes, it wasn't all that bad. But other times for me absolutely sucked.
One time when I was 12, I bought candy and kept a hidden stash. Since my dad was such an anal health freak back then, I couldn't let him find out. One day, my brother finds it, and threatens to rat me out. I hit him, and he karate chopped the back of my head, breaking some of his fingers. He found out, and we were both grounded for a month. His version of grounding might be alot more lenient than I thought it was back then. Both of us couldn't play video games or watch TV. So not being able to do that for a month was hell for us then.
